Welcome to “Is It Serious?,” a conversational podcast where two top doctors pull back the curtain on the American healthcare system and answer all of your health concerns, one question at a time. Our doctor hosts, Jean Luc Neptune, MD and Mark Lewis, MD, share their medical knowledge in a fun, lighthearted chat while also getting to the root of the “question of the day.”

The doctors discuss a range of topics covering everything from complex health issues to the absurdity of drug commercials and also share healthcare hacks, insider insurance tips, and mean tweets from their social media accounts. JL and Mark are the doctor friends that you always wished that you had and now, you do!
